Those are a dozen or so articles out of likely thousands on the Switch that can be found online. You can't expect anyone to take your tiny (self-selected) sample size or the fact that no one here has non-bias and come to a reasonable consclusion. I mean seriously, I've told you where to look on Youtube for example - the comments, like-dislike ratios, and views and yet you're still replying with "I find so and so are mixed, mostly negative, out of the 13 I searched for myself, and also because I personally didn't enjoy the presentation". Do the like-dislike ratios not count as hard evidence? Inb4 millions of people are called delusional "Nintendo fans".

Not at all selected dude.  That list was top results from Googling "nintendo switch opinion" articles for the last week.

Being ingornat to facts is going to just lead to disappointment.

Hmm odd, my own google search showed much different results. You should know that 1. Google's algorithm isn't known very well by most people. 2. It doesn't show a representative sample size in searches. 3. Google likes to cater certain websites and products based on the user's searches, even if you aren't logged in. 4. The sample size is still WAY too small, and this should be the obvious one. I'm not ignorant to the general consensus, which Youtube and Facebook represent, and not VGChartz unfortunately. I also focused more on numbers rather than your approach, which seems to involve websites that are known for publishiing articles that are clickbait or at the very least incite a reaction.

Facebook also just shows your own circle of connections and Ads that cater to your preferences.  It can be a total bubble that amplifies your own bias (echo chamber).

The Switch is not operating as a 3DS but a hybrid, which will most likely fashion itself to play console games on the go. It wont have the 3DS appeal nor the games. The Switch is a great console, but the launch price, the accessory prices and more troubling info got in the way of what was a pretty solid piece of tech. Nintendo has to nail their support from third party or else.

I was saying the Switch will receive at minimum the support the 3ds (And Wii U) received because Nintendo's console and handheld software divisions are now streamlined, and together working on one system. Also, I'm sure Nintendo will want to release a 2D Zelda, Mario, etc. because those types of games have appeal all on their own. I get that Smash, Kart and most games will get the 3D high resolution approach from now on, but the line is being blurred because we have the option to use it as a handheld and it can receive games that look like they belong on handheld, but like I said the lines are too blurred, which is why it should be called a hybrid as you stated.

I feel if third party support can be achieved through creative releases (i.e. Rabbids-Mario crossover, titles that appeal more to Nintendo's userbase), then that would be enough to carry the switch. I personally believe the streamlining/having all Nintendo releases on one console will ensure the Switch succeeds. I thought the launch price was fine, considering it's only availlable as one sku. The joycons have so much tech in them so I'm not surprised at their price, but the dock is another story.

No...it wont. It will demand higher resolution games, which will cut developers that worked on the 3DS. 3DS games took a shorter and less costly development period than HD games. Its a portable that plays console games. Most of the games Nintendo names are not finished hence why you didnt see too many gameplay videos at the reveal. There was very little core info, nor specs or anything. Most of the information was already information we already knew.

. Nintendo also does not create an equal ground for all parties to exist, which is why their gamers have grown out of gaming third party on Nintendo. I tell you if Nintendo ever decided to be fair to all parties with their console development their competition would be in for it. They wont though, because everything is only about their console and first party which alienates most third party. Tthe sales figures alone prove it. Ubisoft is the only one who really majorly profits from them and thats why you see them singing their praises. Its mostly with their dancing games too.



Good threads never die.

This.

It isn't much fun to necrobump a Barney thread because Barney admits it when he's wrong.



It's fun to look back at these things now that the Switch has bested the PS4's first 9 months.

You forgot to add "total in its first year" but even that's looking like a bad prediction
